This month’s National Year of Reading theme is Feel. This theme can be interpreted in so many ways, but here at Nowra Library, we’re taking ‘Feel’ to a whole new level by focusing on Courage & Valour- the extremes of physical and emotional experience. This month is a great time to read other’s people’s stories of survival, courage and determination, whether they climbed a mountain, survived against overwhelming odds or lived through war. Let’s feel this April.
Here’s some ideas to get you started….
